Weekend Contest Winner - Relativity

16

24 - Kyriakos Tsilavis - Escher

I was a little afraid that this weekend contest's topic might be too hard - creating an interpretation of a famous painting is quite a challenge. But Eric Varela was right - it proved to be a wonderfully inspiring task! As a Dutchman, I especially enjoyed how many Dutch painters were represented: Mondriaan, Van Gogh, Vermeer and Escher.

Kyriakos Tsilavis's interpretation of 'Relativity' by MC Escher was the clear winner this week.

Kyriakos - awesome job! You’ll also get to pick the topic for next weekend! Please email me at bart @ this site and let me know what everyone should be spending their time on :)

Read on for the runners up and enjoy the art!

  1. Nice interpretations !
    By the way, the name of the Belgian surrealist is not René 'Margritte', it is René 'Magritte' ;-)

    Yep. I knew the winner when I saw it. Nice job, Kyriakos!

    And congrats to everyone who entered and completed something for the challenge. You folk are really stepping it up with these challenges, and it's always nice seeing more people enter.

      And yeah, Bart, there certainly were a lot of Dutch art choices, and such nice renditions, at that. It certainly was pleasant for me to see two entries based on the work of my favorite artist, Vincent van Gogh.

    Hi all,

    congratulations to all. I think for this topic we need more than one weekend!

    Thanks a lot for your comments
